Good Things Take Time! Breathtaking Valentino Spring 2013 Couture

Today my inspiration comes from the Valentino Spring 2013 Couture Collection. It is extraordinary; no question. It is not just the final product that inspires me, but the story behind it:
In a fascinating review by Tim Blanks, it is said that it took 850 hours to embroider an organza jacket and skirt, and that is only one example of the incredible artisanal effort that has gone into this collection. It does not surprise me; the intricacy and beauty of the garments is astounding.
